UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The crew of the plane, which crashed last month and killed all 157 passengers, carried out Boeing’s recommended measures but was unable to regain control of the plane, Ethiopia’s transport minister said on Thursday.
“The crew has repeatedly carried out all the recommended actions from the manufacturer but has not been able to control the plane,” Minister Dagmawit Mugis said.
Her comments came as the results of the preliminary investigation into the disaster were revealed, adding that the report recommends “revision of the flight control system by the factory.”
“The aviation authorities must prove that the flight control system of the aircraft has been sufficiently processed before the factory starts operating the aircraft,” she said.
Mugis, in particular, did not mention the crash system during the MICS, which is believed to be crash-related, but said there was a “repeat” of the “steering” plane down.
The MCA system was designed to reduce the front of the aircraft if it detected a slowdown or loss of speed.
